. all right, that's great. thank you. >> it's possible to forgive poor mitt romney for feeling a little overshadowed by his running mate. after all, it's hard to compete with a guy who can catch fish with his bare hands while at the same time promoting a budget that would rob kids of their free lunch meals. how much of mitt romney's campaign belong to mitt romney? you can't help but wonder if mr. romney is just going along for the ride. joining us is tim dickinson of "rolling stone." his new article is in the current issue of the magazine and an excellent read it is, too. tim, i'd like to show you something before we delve into your article. just take a listen to this, tim. >> the only thing that limits you is your god given talent and your own effort. we need to have that dynamic economy returned. do you that by growing the economy and getting people a hand up, not a hand out. teach a man how to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> right. sow doesn't believe in handouts. he won't even feed the fish. he wouldn't feed pigeons in central park for fear they'd be
community backers of romney and ryan are saying right now, and these guys are not tea party people, they are not idea logically opposed. they are worried about an inco n incompetent presidency, his stimulus package not working anywhere near his expectations, goes out and does something economically dumb, a mandate known as obamacare. neil: these echoes this service they are getting nervous in the business community. even as americans by their consumer confidence figures are getting more optimistic. >> and average americans may be getting more optimistic, looking at be round table, ceo survey, they are not, they look at economic and employment trends. neil: when your boss is not optimistic that should alarm you. >> that ceo survey index is like an economic indicator, is the lowest it has been since 2009, that is right after the financial crisis. that is not confidence among the ceos, that is why they are worries about 4 more yores of president obama and that is why they are freaking out. neil: charlie thank you, charlie gasparino, much more on the issue, mitt romney may be down in t
politicians wld rather talk about anything but thecy,ndhe w looking at right there, mitt romney, seems to be exhibit 1 in daniel henninger's argument. how does mitt romney turn it around and laser focus on the economy and make the sale next week in time? >> wes goi tbed bee le are feeling a little bit better about thei lives. you know, they've paid off their credit card debts. their 401(k)s are back where they were. you kn, as steve ratner jt showed, their housing prices -- values are goi up. you know wha i wld ds - yo, john mccain very, very successfully made government seem foolish by picking out stupid earmarks. you know, the sgest argument i've seen mitt romney m i , yo know, the government -- the government's regulatory apparatus has bogged down. you know, i would have him go at stupid regulation tricks. you know, there are all tse silly regs that have been paed, u kn,n tls thoused to vote for or vote against, joe. and i think that he has to run against the federal government at this point rather than against the economy. >> willie? >> john? sorry. thout joe was gngoay th i ree wi
, and they're screeching about how the polls are rigged. romney's people know they're in big trouble, right? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpe
appeared >> -- then governor romney. >> right now, you're trying to get a sales tax increase to pay for pre-k. can you defend, sitting next to someone who does not like texas famously, the decision to brought to market with a tax increase even for something you so strongly believe in? many mayors are with yo but there are a lot of elected officials and san antonio who are not with you. >> basically, i fundamentally believe that brainpower is the currency of success. in the 21st century global economy. those communities that created will be the communities that thrive in our market economy. and those communities that do not will be the ones who fall behind. san antonio, i believe, needs to make a huge investment in education. that investment is not limited to more money. it also means getting parents involved. it also means expecting more from everybody along whole education ecosystem, from administrators to policy-makers to teachers come expecting more out of everyone. so what i have on the table in san antonio is basically a 1/8 cent sales tax that will cost the median household in the cit
we're watching right now, mitt romney and barack obama have just 40 more days to convince you they should be president. and for the third day in a row, the two men are campaigning in the same state. tonight those familiar men in the striped shirts will be back on the field. the nfl reaching a deal with its locked out refs and it only took a blown call, it was a big one, to get the job done. sglefrn has a theory about where jimmy hoffa's body is buried. now nearly 40 years later, we could soon find out as investigators check out a new tip about the missing teamster'ser abouteamster's leader. >>> j.k. rowling is back and this time a book for the grown up audience. newsroom starts now. 40 days from now, americans will have made their choice for president. until that day, every interview, every campaign stop, every clat is critical. today both president obama and mitt romney are campaigning in virginia, holding rallies at the same time. obama in virginia beach, romney in springfield. both campaigns talking jobs. >> you're going to look at what i've done and you can look at what he
general been corrected or removed? no. it has not. it is still right there on mitt romney's campaign web page. and then there's the now-infamous welfare ad from the romney campaign last month. >> president obama quietly ended the work requirement, gutting welfare reform. >> that is not true. that did not happen. president obama did not strip the work requirement out of welfare quietly or otherwise. quite the opposite, in fact. which, again, has been pointed out ad nauseam by political reporters. but the romney campaign's response about getting caught lying about president obama's welfare policies was not to correct or remove the ad, like mitt romney has said has always been done, that ad. been done, that ad is still there on their campaign web page. in fact the campaign responded by telling we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. when he was asked about the untrue welfare ad. >> any time there's anything that's been amiss we correct it or remove it. the president on the other and. >> even the welfare ad? >> absolutely. it has been shown time and again that the p
. thank you! >> all right. we're watching mitt romney there in springfield, virginia. only 40 days until the election. president obama we're also watching for as well. he's also in virginia, expected to speak in virginia beach moments from now. you see the podium there. virginia, a very important swing state. 13 electoral votes in that state. the recent polls now showing that president obama is slightly, slightly ahead of romney in the state. the last cnn poll of polls for virginia, he was leading 50% to romney's 44%. you might recall back in 2008 president obama won virginia and became the first democrat since 1964, lyndon johnson to actually win that state and that was significant. i'll bring in jim acosta who is traveling with mitt romney. he's at the event talking a little bit about the message we heard from mitt romney. clearly it's important for him to reach the working class. that came in some of the comments he made regarding trade with china. what does he need to do? what does his team think they need to do to make sure he holds on to virginia? >> reporter: suzanne, as you know,
's by far the most important debate, chris. you tell me whether governor romney has the right strategy here. >> it's in politico. we don't know the veracity of it. we don't know whether that's what they mean to do. but we know this. that if you are explaining, you are losing. what governor romney has been doing a lot of is trying to direct the record on president obama. in the sound you just played in that video the president said we know we don't get it right but we don't care. it's cool because it's politics. mitt romney is not going to do anything that shames the president into being a nicer guy or changing the way that he describes mitt romney because remember this has been the most rough, absolutely negative reelection campaign ever run by an incumbent. if mitt romney thinks he can change that by correcting the record he is making a mistake. >> i would say what's happening is what happens in every election. what we saw two weeks ago was the reverse. the obama campaign saying the romney campaign is coming off. you don't want to be on the defensive. what the debates should be about, it's
been making so many headlines right now and you mitt romney. we talked a lot about that red line whether the president is clear enough making a red line with iran. netanyahu publicly criticizing the administration for not doing that romney citing with netanyahu. take a listen to the family we met with last night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees,ays the president still has
that governor romney switch that momentum as that voting continues wolf, 40 days right up to election day. >> everyone agrees, john, iowa very much in play right now, right? >> reporter: yes. it's one of the states -- we have nine states we call toss-ups. this is one of them. seven of those nine states allow some form of in person early voting. iowa is still in play, but iowa is one of those states that have drifted a bit in the president's favor. and, again, this is a state where republicans did very well in 2010. they believe they have some energy on the ground. but they've watched the last ten days, wolf, if you talk to them privately, they're not happy with the romney strategy. they're not happy with the romney advertisements. and they think first and foremost he must have a very, very strong debate on the question of which candidate can better handle the economy. they say he must do that in that first week of october to turn the tide here. >> all right. john will be joining us later in "the situation room" as well. thanks, john, very much. >>> today we learned the president plans a f
thing is governor romney should have been talking like this from the beginning. as soon as he won the primaries, he should have moved to the middle, talked about his health care plan. he's right about his health care plan. it's a terrific thing that every child in massachusetts is covered by health insurance. i tried very hard and came close in pennsylvania. that's a terrific thing, and it does show empathy for children and people too poor to afford health care. he should have pivots and gone that way in june. it's too late now and too transparent. all those words you used, how many would have been in ads in the romney cap pampaign if the tape hadn't come out. >> the basic question is did the republicans nominate the wrong guy? i'm not asking about gingrich, santorum and all the ones that ran in the primaries. i think clearly romney is a cut above them. we have some new polling evidence this week about the particular struggles that romney is having with middle class and working class voters on basically the question of can he identify with struggles, do you think he identifies wit
have thought. i k hisroubles in the polling also relate to his byan statement. you know, romney's goi to have to come up with something to combathis with. and thus far his campan doesseem to kno what to do. the shot they're running right romn in the commercial looking athe camera probably is their most effective ad to combat this the president and i both care out pele that my plans will help them. running. ng swing state ad it's >>hat do you think of thi roland? >> the problem is the ad wa portrayed, erick. the prlem is that the words eomingdictly o of mitt romney's mouth. when healls folks ctims, when he talks abo iner of all they want are free fo, housing, thgs along those lives. you're an american out there and you're struggling whe it comes to yo budget and grocerieou are concerned out that. the botm l is mittomney is not resing spificly to this ad. he tried to double downn it what it ds is gives the rc simplut and that's the la tngou need when you're trying to pick up ne, two, three points th you itically need in tse ates. me time though, i want you to respond that ick, but ae
but first right now some brand new stories and breaking news. jon: zeroing in the on the swing states. dueling campaign events in the same political battleground of virginia. governor romney and president obama both expected to speak there shortly. plus the obama administration insists sanctions are working to keep iran's nuclear ambitions in check. others have serious doubts. what happens if the doubters are right? in the race for the white house do the polls paint a fair picture? is there media bias? our "news watch" panel weighs in. all new, all live is "happening now." jon: welcoming jenna lee back from italy. i have hope you had a good --. jenna: our friends maya and pat had an amazing wedding. congratulations to them. back to work today. jon: big day on the campaign trail for the candidates today. we have every angle covered. touchdown tore football fans. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm jenna lee. first the headline today is that the strike is over. the nfl and the referees union reaching what some are describing as a tentative labor agreement. we'll see if it sticks. this afte
the carpet. if mitt romney says something, it's front page news. >> jon, my counterpart is right, this has been happening for a long time, but it's gotten worse lately. and where do you hear in the press that the president has only met with his jobs council once since january, that the president with the attacks in benghazi, he won't come out and say they were truly terrorist attacks. >> oh, he said that. >> he did not come out publicly and hold a press conference in n saying that. let me finish, please peter, i did not interrupt you. where do you hear in the liberal mainstream media that the president's jobs bill where he says republicans are blocking him, that his own democrats voted down in the senate. and one last one that's a doozy, that harry reid has not put forth a budget in three years. so basically, journalists today that do biased reporting, they're actually doing themselves a disservice in their trade. i mean, this is an election year. people tune to the news to be informed. jon: we just got those gdp numbers out today, peter, 3.3% -- 1.3% growth in gdp in the most recent quart
.s. banks, freezing millions out of their accounts right now. is your money in danger? >>> head to head. as early voting begins, obama and romney adjust their closing arguments in the battleground of virginia. up close and personal new ads before their big showdown next week. >>> inside job. tsa agents are supposed to screen your luggage, so, how did our stolen ipad end up in this officer's home. brian ross with hundreds of tsa officers caught red handed. >>> and mona lisa mystery. you know the masterpiece. but could this be a second mona lisa? it was a claim that shocked the world today, so, we put it to the test. >>> good evening. diane is on special assignment this thursday. we're going to tell you about that in a bit. but we begin tonight with cyber warfare. the most extensive attack on american banks ever. launched from the middle east, hatching right now. citigroup, bank of america, wells fargo, u.s. bank corp and today, pnc. america's biggest banks, with millions of american families locked out of their accounts online. so, what does it mean for your money? who is behind it? how
in the right track, and in every category the country is trusting obama over romney. this is like the foreign policy economy. lou: that is just about all there is, think. romney is in trouble. >> there is no question that this is a very tight race. some of these polls were they show obama heading in ohio, they are really over sampling democrats and they're also overestimating democratic turnout because they're using -- >> i think everybody will stipulate to that. the deal is, this guy, we can't find paul ryan on the campaign trail. >> i disagree. at that ron is connecting and rain is connecting. they're generating huge crowds. the only reason people say he is not connecting is because the left-wing media is telling you he's of connecting. that's not true. >> i'm disappointed in some of the romney messaging. when he came out in that ad and said he was talking about the middle class and now obamacare is about the middle-class, i thought that was a misstep. it barack obamacare about the middle class would not be raising taxes. i feel like now is the time were you need to really hit obama strong,
? >> right now obama in the polls is at 53%. it means it is not good enough for romney to pick up the undecided voters. which might mean like a crisis and you rup. the bullish sign has been in the stock market which has been getting jittery like spain and europe. romney is running out of time like routine things like the debate. bill clinton told me that the debates are going to be crucial for romney. the first debate if he can turn around the 47% fiasco. it could be a disaster. the impression he gave that comes with being a wealthy detached guy not caring about people who need help. what would you recommend he do? >> i think the 47% comment revealed, he wasn't doing what you should do play to the center. he has written off peak who have the median income and below. the text book strategy is can you find a way. he is not taughting out ideology saying i can be a reasonable manager. that was his message at first sand he is trying to find different approaches which is what you do when you are losing and he should have stuck to the message he had all along instead of trying to pick pa
about the situation in american government right now they said the real issue that's hanging over mitt romney is just the fact that people hate, they detest, congress, the fact that nothing gets done in washington and as one man put it, he thought it hung around mitt romney's neck like an albatross because the house of representatives, of course, has a republican majority. nonetheless, what was interesting here, while the president spoke to a larger crowd this was appeared like a specific messaging event where romney was speaking to a smaller crowd, like you're running for mayor of a major city or governor of the state of virginia. only 200 people here today. >> the other thing that's really interesting to watch in the last 48 hours how focused they are on defending against the 47% remark from the videotape that came out last week because this is something that was very clear in his comments to our colleague, ron allen in ohio yesterday. let's watch. >> don't forget, i got everybody in my state insure, 100% of the kids in state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that
. that is not being taken into account in a lot of these polls. but doug is right to say that we have to deal in reality, and reality is obama may not have this kind of substantial lead but he certainly is leading. i think team romney now understands that. we're five weeks away from the campaign, from the election, rather, and what you're seeing from the romney campaign is a real focus. five weeks away. obama is leading. by at least a little bit anyway, if not tied. so this really does focus the romney team's mind. martha: which brings up a great point, doug. psychologically, what is the impact of seeing these numbers which we have all been used to seeing neck-and-neck throughout the process? you suddenly see these big swings where looks like president obama is leading by a lot. it does a couple things. it may motivate and put fire under the romney campaign but also may make democrats overconfident. >> well, i think it also could, well create some enthusiasm for the democrats. that's not a partisan statement. martha: could be. >> it could also, martha, and this is something that i think monic
ohio is to winning the white house. but right now president obama has the edge there. ohio is the center of the political universe. >> i love toledo, ohio. >> hello, ohio! >> reporter: it was a buckeye state brawl between president obama and mitt romney. >> i am not fighting to create democratic jobs or republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> you want four more years with 23 million people struggling to find a job? >> reporter: in ohio election day is really election five weeks. starting next tuesday voters can cast their ballots. presidential contenders are working furiously to lock down support now. right now it is the president who has the clear edge. abc news moved ohio from the tossup column to lean obama. that puts the president within 15 electoral votes of the 270 he needs to win re-election. ohio has been trending obama for weeks. one new poll has him up 10 points. but, a senior romney adviser seemed to suggest their own polling shows a much tighter race. and that's why they're still fighting for ohio's 18 oral o but soon the ro be forced to decide
.s. is not completely above reproach, he usually balance it with praise for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to europe, latin america, to the muslim world during his first months in office, no indications were he had said the nation had made mistakes. in most of those cases, the context was a call for better relations with other countries after which he described as damage done by misguided moves by his predecessor, bush. so we fact check that. again, it did not seem to make a difference to the campaign. earlier this month, when that violence broke out at u.s. diplomatic outposts in libya and egypt. romney jumped to accuse obama of di
